It has finally been confirmed that the AYANEO2 will feature the RDNA2 graphics which means it will be as powerful as the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Along with the RDNA2 architecture, the gaming console will be based on the Ryzen 6000U “Rembrandt” APU. As we all know, the 6800U is AMD’s latest processor which has been designed specifically for light and thin systems.
Talking about the APU, it will be clocked at a speed of 4.7 GHz, making it 300 MHz higher than the AYANEO Next series. The processor features 8 cores and 16 threads and will come with RDNA2 graphics, sticking to the same graphics like that on the SteamDeck.
There is absolutely no doubt about how fast the AYANEO2 is going to be. The 6800U is going to come with Radeon 680M integrated graphics which features 12 compute units. This shows 50% more compute units than the Steam Deck. According to the company’s CEO, the device is going to match the GTX 1050 Ti in terms of power.
The APU will only take 15 to 28W power, meaning that there is a lot of room for adjustment for companies. Those who are in the making of the handheld consoles usually make use of configurable TDP so they can achieve full performance while the device is connected to a docking station or even while running without a charger.
We have seen the device running many games like the Witcher 3, Metro Exodus, Elden Ring et cetera. And based on these viewings we see that the 1280 x 800 frameless display is unlike anything we have previously seen on the Nintendo Switch or the Steam Deck.
The company’s CEO Arthur Zhang has announced that the gaming console will have a fingerprint module along with a new software which is yet to be unveiled. The launch date of the device is yet to be announced, but the launch is scheduled sometime towards the end of the year.
